Christmas message

from the President

Quantock Orienteers have suffered quite badly from the weather this year. Our Compass Sport heat was rained off but this had its benefits as it gave members a chance to perform on the big stage at Cannock Chase.

Mutters Moor

Mutters Moor

Devon League

A brief flurry of hail just after midday was the precursor to some very wet afternoon weather near Sidmouth on Sunday 16th December. This definitely benefitted earlier starters! QO sent about a dozen runners as usual.

Maps for juniors

Clarity praised

An experienced member of another club who's been a regular at our Forest League events over many years has praised the club for providing clear, large scale maps for juniors. Surprisingly, it appears 'going large' isn't always the norm elsewhere.

Venice, yesterday

Venice street race

What streets?!

We're used to events being rained off, but held so soon after the ancient city's worst floods in a decade, it seems amazing this race actually went ahead! Tony Hext celebrated a big birthday in style there.

Missing in action- dibber 987

First dibs

Newcomer finds lost SI card

Like finding a needle in a haystack...no, we're not talking about "that" control on your last course. Rather, what happens when those neat little timing chips we attach to our index fingers go missing during competition (and hopefully not into a pile of brashings)

Steep ascent to the folly, with the Quantocks behind

Willett Hill JOG

All courses visited the tower at the top of the hill so everyone had a chance to catch their breath and enjoy the views!

It was good to see people chatting at the end comparing their courses and discussing their route choices.
